This horrible story has more twists and turns than the Grand Prix speedway.
The hijacked plane made that sharp turn west before the co-pilot signed off. The plane had made that critical turn back to Malaysia 12 minutes before the co-pilot signed off for the night. He did so without ever saying a word, according to FOX news.
ACARS reports every 30 minutes. The plane took off at 12:41 am. 30 minutes later, at 1:07 am, the next ACARS status report had a different flight plan. The plane was already heading West when the co-pilot signed off, “Alright, good night”.

“Friends have described Mr Hamid as religious and serious about his career. An iman who knew the co-pilot well stressed the 27-year-old was a “good boy, a good Muslim, humble and quiet”.”
According to aviation experts it would be hard for one pilot to reprogram the plane without the other pilot knowing.
It was first reported last night that the first critical turn (the U turn) was programmed into the computer system. The change into the computer system could only have been made if someone on the plane intentionally reprogrammed that turn into the computer system on the plane. or prior to take off.
Adding to the puzzle:
Thailand’s military said Tuesday that its radar detected a plane that may have been Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 just minutes after the jetliner’s communications went down, and that it didn’t share the information with Malaysia earlier because it wasn’t specifically asked for it.
A twisting flight path described Tuesday by Thai air force spokesman Air Vice Marshal Montol Suchookorn took the plane to the Strait of Malacca, which is where Malaysian radar tracked Flight 370 early March 8.
The media is reporting Hamid as “religious”. Well Atlas readers know what that can mean. It’s a red flag. Robert Spencer wrote:
Mainstream media stories are all reporting that Fariq Abdul Hamid was “religious” as if that were an indication that he couldn’t have been involved in the plane’s disappearance. The fact that Osama bin Laden and Anwar al-Awlaki and Khaled Sheikh Mohammed and Feisal Shahzad and Abdulhakim Mujaid Muhammad and John Walker Lindh and Adam Gadahn and a host of other Islamic jihadists living and dead were or are “religious” never seems to occur to these “journalists” — or maybe they just don’t want it to occur to you.
